So glad to welcome you here to my little corner of the world wide web! Use the button below to subscribe to my newsletter and to be the first to hear updates.

I am an author, a speaker, a mother, a wife and a broken Christ-follower.

My first book, The Spacious Place, was published in 2015 and I started this blog in 2016. I love to write and share what God is teaching me. I have experienced many struggles and trials through my life. The promise of the spacious place, from Psalm 31:8, became an important concept drawing me closer to God during those times. I took the lessons I was learning and wrote a Bible study as a personal journey of faith. God was drawing me into a closer relationship with him and I wanted to bring others along on the journey.

I graduated from Wheaton College in 1991 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in English. I taught 3-6th graders in public and private schools. I also was privileged to teach library classes in an elementary school. Reading stories to kids and helping them find books to read is about the best job there is! Between paid working gigs, I have taught and participated in women's Bible study for years. Some seminary training kept those intellectual juices flowing when my kids were very young. 

Now pursuing a writing and speaking ministry, I live in Saint Louis with my husband, three teenagers, a cat named Princess Leia and a dog named Frog. I love to share what I am learning with other women and challenge them to dig deeper into the Word. I write from an evangelical perspective. Most of all, I am passionately convinced that all women are capable of deeper study and that they will be blessed through it. Thanks for checking out my website! I'd love to hear from you!
